What I’m doing with my life
I'm living in the Okanagan and enjoying the life style. I work for a non-profit housing society as the building administrator for the society's apartment buildings and volunteer for various worthwhile causes. I am the "daddy" to the world's coolest dog who always makes my life interesting.
The first things people usually notice about me
I enjoy what I do in life, regardless of what it may be. I can be annoyingly positive around people who complain about their sad lot in life. It seems that I have a gift for finding positive value in almost any situation.....and I'm not afraid to use it! I don't have time for self-pity, which often annoys people who have found time for it. Oh, well....

One or two good near death experiences can do wonders for one's outlook!

I find humour in most parts of life and use it as a way of dealing with issues that are important to me. If people pay attention, they can learn what I care about or what troubles me even though I'm not likely to complain.
I enjoy conversation and using the English language to good effect. I am far from snobbish, but I do not try to hide the fact that I am intelligent and sensitive. False modesty is not one of my traits.

I place great importance on treating people fairly, and have taken a job where I am underpaid (relative to what I could earn elsewhere with my skill set) because I value what the housing society that employs me does for people.

One more thing....I have very little vanity. I've earned my grey hair, laugh lines, worry wrinkles, etc., and I wouldn't thank anyone for a chance to be younger again......unless, of course, I could take 64 years of knowledge about human behaviour back to my late teens and early twenties.
Six things I could never do without
air to breathe, (filtered) water to drink, ("clean") food to eat, books to read, my dog and his little half nephew....just because he's the coolest dog ever, and the last one is a tie between at least 177 other really important things in my life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The complexity of human relationships.....and how well intentioned good people can mess up each others' lives. or create such incredible happiness for each other by doing basically the same things. seems I really don't understand women after all these years. :-))
On a typical Friday night I am
relaxing after the long week unless there is something specific that I have planned. There is fetch to be played, walks to be taken, and general goofing with my dogs. Dinner may be a little late but I always cook something good at the end of the week. I'm probably avoiding the cleaning and tidying that should be done because there is always Saturday morning. If there is natural light available, I could be"working" on a painting (like watercolour painting is work!) or reading a good book or generally "chilling." Now that I've moved -again! - there is work to be done on the vegetable garden as well. Never at a loss for things to do.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Private things are not meant to be shared on public websites.
You should message me if
you find any of what I've said interesting or potentially appealing.
